The following casting call just came in over the wire for a new mysterious Food Network project. No word on whether it's for TV or the web, but if the casting call is any indication, it will involve magic, pot smoking, and a hilarious vaguely ethnic host. Sounds like a hit:
The Food Network is looking for a male CHEF (early to late 20s, any ethnicity) to co-host a new short form project.
Ideal co-host is a Zen Chef with a Yoda-like ability to make magic happen in the kitchen with limited ingredients and lots of imagination – will be able to make perfect poached eggs, make it look fun & interesting & totally do-able.
Looking for great skills and an irreverent sense of humor. Must be instantly likeable. Think a combination of Harold AND Kumar – innate precision and knowledge with a laid-back approach.
2-day shoot in early to mid-October in the NYC area.
Send recent photo (no older than 6 months) + resume + witty note describing why you're perfect for this job ASAP to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Better start updating those resumes and cracking those funnies.
